UNOPS supports partners to build a better future by providing services that increase the efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of peace building, humanitarian and development projects. Mandated as a central resource of the United Nations, UNOPS provides sustainable project management, procurement and infrastructure services to a wide range of governments, donors and United Nations organizations.

The New York Service Cluster (NYSC) supports the United Nations Secretariat, as well as other New York-based United Nations organizations, bilateral and multilateral partners in the delivery of UNOPS mandate in project management, infrastructure management, and procurement management.

The Sustainable Development Cluster (SDC) supports diverse partners with their peacebuilding, humanitarian and development operations. It was formed by combining the following portfolios: Grants Management Services (GMS), UN Technology Support Services (UNTSS), Development and Special Initiatives Portfolio (DSIP). It provides Services to partners' programmes that are designed, structured, and managed with a global perspective and primarily serving partners that are headquartered in New York.  The SDC has a footprint of approximately 125 countries.

The United Nations Department of Operational Support, Office of Information and Communications Technology (UN DOS-OICT) is responsible for the delivery of applications and technologies that satisfy the requirements of the Departments of Peace Operations and Operational Support (DPO/DOS) missions as well as Special Political Missions (SPMs). 

The Policy and Best Practices Service (PBPS), OICT’s partner in this project, is part of the Policy Evaluation and Training Division (DPET) of the Department of Peace Operations. It provides support to both DPO and DOS. The core function of PBPS is to help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of peacekeeping operations through the exchange of good practices between missions, the development of guidance material that reflects lessons learned, and thematic policy support in selected areas. PBPS also leads several reform processes. 

UN Peacekeeping helps countries to achieve lasting peace, supports political processes, protects hundreds of thousands of civilians and helps guarantee cease fires. Yet peacekeeping faces several challenges, and COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on peacekeeping missions’ ability to deliver on their mandates. To respond to these challenges, the Action for Peacekeeping (A4P) initiative of the Secretary-General, launched in 2018, endeavors to mobilize collective support to strengthen peacekeeping. Missions have reported varying impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on mandate implementation. Understanding the reasons for the contrasting experiences of missions is important, to inform preparedness for future crises; to enable the cross-fertilization of lessons learned and best practice between missions; and to inform planning and mandate implementation strategies going forward.

PBPS requires an ICT Senior Analyst – Reporting to contribute to a number of workstreams, including on COVID-19 response, A4P, the digital transformation strategy, and protection-related files.
